  1. Nature and Purposes of the processing of Personal Data

Your personal data will be processed exclusively for the following purposes:

  • Contacting you via the means of contact provided by you to:
    • provide you with general marketing material, limited to our field of business,
    • inform you about our products, featured projects, trade fairs we participate,
    • provide you with Charity-related news which are related to us,
    • Non-marketing information, limited to our field of business, such as news in the energy and water supply business, e.g. information related to utilities.
  • Playing out personalized product and service offers on our site and on third-party sites, retargeting and for measuring the effectiveness of our campaigns. For this purpose, we use cookies from advertising partners (third-party providers).
  • For collaborations with selected partners to show you personalized content that matches your interests or to evaluate, track, and bill joint campaigns.
  1. Transfers to Third Countries

In the case of processing outside the European Union and/or the European Economic Area, the processing is also based either on a legal authorization (for the performance of a contract or payment), on the consent of the data subject, on a legal obligation which has come into force, or to protect the legitimate interests of the data subject, insofar as these are based on law. In this case, the processing will only take place in third countries with a recognized level of data protection. A recognized level of data protection follows the standard protection clauses of the EU Commission based on contractual obligations.

Note on data transfer to the USA: By accepting the respective purposes and providers, you also consent in accordance with Art. 49 (1) lit. a GDPR that your data may be processed in the USA. This is assessed by the ECJ as a country with an insufficient level of data protection according to EU standards. In particular, there is a risk that your data may be processed by authorities, for control or monitoring purposes, possibly also without the possibility of legal redress.

  1. Protection of Your Personal Data

In order to protect your personal data, we use implemented processes that allow only a minimal group of people who are trained in handling personal data access to your personal information. These processes are subject to monitoring by means of technological solutions, which also regulate and keep track of the restricted access to your personal data. Since we have no influence on the transmission path by which your personal data is transferred to us, you are welcome to send your data by post or telephone in addition to the electronic method. In principle, the electronic transmission is carried out using currently valid TLS standards. Transmission to Third Parties

In the case of the transmission of information to other persons and companies in the context of our processing, this process is based either on a legal authorization (for the performance of a contract or payment), an existing consent of the person concerned, a legal obligation coming into force, or to protect legitimate interests of our part, insofar as these are based on legal grounds.
